Ranchi /Vadodara /New Delhi, Jan 01 (ANI): Fans of cricketer Mahendra Singh Dhoni took to streets and urged him to take back his decision of retirement from test cricket. The third test between Australia and India in Melbourne failed to deliver a nail-biting finish on Tuesday (December 31) but ended with a draw tinged with controversy and the shock retirement of long-serving India captain Mahendra Singh Dhoni from test cricket.
